    8-inch Kevlar 3-Way High Power In-Wall Speaker (Pair) - 200W Max

    Monoprice brings custom in-wall speakers to new levels of affordability with our line of Monoprice Brand Premium in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. These new, high fidelity units deliver the high quality craftsmanship and construction you've come to expect from Monoprice brand products at a fraction of what you would expect to pay for them retail.

    In-wall and in-ceiling speakers allow you to expand your listening environment throughout your entire home and remove the clutter of giant box speakers, giving you back your living space. It's a win-win, no-compromise situation for those who desire high fidelity and those who put emphasis on decor.

    Kevlar cones are light weight yet extremely rigid, providing very precise audio with minimal distortion from cone flex. Our Kevlar speakers are matched with an equally precise silk membrane dome tweeter made of titanium fiber thread and a high quality crossover network to ensure high fidelity and low distortion. The lower distortion levels allow the speaker to be driven harder and handle higher peak power levels. The main benefits of our Kevlar speakers are the clarity and fidelity at which they produce audio.


    • Light & rigid, well balanced, yellow woven kevlar cone woofers for distortion free reproduction.
    • Oversized magnets for greater bass impact
    • Precision titanium silk membrane dome tweeters for sweeter highs and pure sonic clarity

    Great Speaker For The Price

    Pros: Ships fast. Great sound at an economical price. Nice fit and finish. Easy to install

    Cons: A few drywall tabs had a tendancy to cross thread and pop out of the holders. Easy to fix!

    Just got the speakers and they came quick! Installation was a breeze and the fit and finish was perfect! Installed as a second zone in a game room. Hooked them up to a 100W Yamaha reciever and they sound great! I was very impressed with the sound reproduction. The best $100 speakers I ever owned. Would recommend.

    Review of Installation only

    • Stash22,

    Pros: Not bad installation as long as you prep

    Cons: Speaker grill didn't seem very well cut and thus I had a pain getting them to sit right.

    First off the installation is a learning curve. Read reviews from people it will save you butt. The template is not very accurate. In fact the instruction for the template is not good at all. I found that if I remove the center piece, small ring and then use the template that was right on. No where in the instructions did it say to remove the small ring. Second thing I highly recommend is to Screw the posts in and out before installing. This will work the threads and help drastically lower the chance of breaking a posts. Also don't over tighten the posts. They will break as they aren't the highest quality but do the job. Use a hand screw driver not a gun. The screws on my unit both where bent up a little upon arrival. It was a pain in the A$$ to get these to sit right. The removal tool is no better than a paper clip trying to get them out.

    The one that works sounds great!

    Pros: Easy install, decent sound and seem very well-built for the money

    Cons: I'm am now very concerned about the longevity of the speakers due to one being bad out of the box.

    Drove home today with excitement to install the speakers, but after getting installed one has a bad Woofer. Hopefully the return process will go quickly so I don't have a big ugly hole in my wall for weeks. Would be a 5 star review if not for the bad speaker!

    8 in walls best value

    Pros: Easy Install. Ridiculously great value. Outstanding sound.

    Cons: None

    I never write these. Ever. After reading some of the reviews I had to jump in. I am an audio nut. Been into it for years (multiple decades really). DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THESE. Like most speakers they need time to break in. They replaced Bose sat/sub speakers and are so completely superior it's laughable. Been running them for 6 months and could not be happier.

    Look at the negative reviews before cutting a big hole in your wall.

    Pros: Cheap

    Cons: Poor Bass response, Sound is hollow. Expensive to return, you now have to pay shipping twice for these very poor speakers.

    This speakers sound very hollow and sound just like the cheap speakers from your tablet. How can so many reviews be wrong. I would say many are false reviews. Before cutting a big hole in my wall I setup the speakers with a temp backing. I was stunned, they sounded horrible. My wife vetoed them as soon as she hear them as well.
